Sir Winston, Where Are You?

Winston Churchill wrote of Islam in 1899: "the civilisation of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilisation of ancient Rome".

The city of London has a Moonbat acting as Mayor and there is no one named Rudy Guilani to come forth. And what about that great Prime Minister with blood of American patriots in his veins, who won World War II? Winston Churchill, where are you in your beloved nation's time of need? It is now World War III and you are with the angels in glory. Why did you not leave behind a wee trace of that determined British will to vanquish the barbarians that you warned about? I hope that if evil days should come upon our own country, and the last army which a collapsing Empire could interpose between London and the invader were dissolving in rout and ruin, that there would be some . . . who would not care to accustom themselves to a new order of things and tamely survive the disaster.” (Ben Mcintyre Times Online) Or is it that Britishers are following Churchill's admonition to "tamely survive the disaster" that looms, the end of civilization?
"HOW DREADFUL are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property – either as a child, a wife, or a concubine – must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men.

"Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities. Thousands become the brave and loyal soldiers of the Queen; all know how to die; but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science – the science against which it had vainly struggled – the civilisation of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilisation of ancient Rome."
